The Gushing Cinephile: June 3, 2013
Here we are yet again, another week of The Gushing Cinephile. I would like to clarify exactly what this segment consists of, other than my sheer excitement for cinema, obviously. I know that many of you are very busy from day to day and might miss something significant. So, with this weekly post, I compile what I feel to be relevant to the cinematic community and display it for all to see, well, whoever chooses to read it. I know that this week has been relatively slow for the film industry, as I assume other weeks will also be, but I will also do my best. So, let’s just get started.
We are now mere days away from the release of one of the most anticipated films in recent memory, Man of Steel. There is this slowly building, ascending excitement or anxiousness in my gut that gets stronger with each passing moment we get closer and closer to its release. My pre-purchased tickets are starting to burn a hole in my pocket! Well, at least the soundtrack, composed by Hans Zimmer, is set for release in a week. I am eagerly looking forward to that. Here is something to tide us over another 10 days or so. It is possibly the greatest thing I have ever seen.
Speaking of Hans Zimmer. He has officially signed on to score Christopher Nolan’s upcoming picture “Interstellar.” Having previously worked together on countless films and combining to create revolutionary and addictive cinematic combinations, I am eagerly looking forward to this collaboration as well.
Speaking of Christopher Nolan, the rumours have died down regarding his possibly direction of Bond 24. It seemed earlier in the week that big name directors such as Ang Lee (Life of Pi) and Nicholas Winding Refn (Drive), amongst others, were being contacted about signing on to helm the next James Bond picture. However, now it seems that Sam Mendes is returning after his successful go-around “SkyFall.” Who would you like to see direct the new Bond film? Regardless, at least we can take solace in the fact that Skyfall scribe John Logan is returning and has already started working on the new script.
Sticking with Christopher Nolan a bit, check out this video inside Heath Ledger’s Joker diary, found recently. It is a really haunting, eerie look into the immense investment Ledger put into the character.
In other news, Dan Harmon is finally making his return to Community. This is a huge turn around for the show considering it was losing momentum and one its lead characters in Chevy Chase. Now, it seems more likely it will make its quota of “6 seasons and a movie.”
Finally, we may not know much about Lars Von Trier’s upcoming picture “Nymphomaniac,” but we do know the title of its chapters which were released earlier this past week. Check them out below.
Chapter 1: The Complete Angler, Chapter Two: Jerome, Chapter 3: Mrs. H, Chapter 4: Delirium, Chapter 5: The Little Organ School, Chapter 6: The Eastern & Western Church (The Silent Duck), Chapter 7: The Mirror, Chapter 8: The Gun.
That concludes The Gushing Cinephile for this week. Please comment below on the content because I am, oh, so lonely…haha…kidding…have a great week!
